More than half of all men in the United States are affected by enlarged breast tissue. Gynecomastia can be caused by several conditions: hormonal imbalance, reaction to medications or drugs, or occasionally, for no known reason.
Whatever the cause, if you are a man with gynecomastia, it can leave you feeling self-conscious and it can greatly impact your self-esteem.
Am I a candidate for male breast reduction?
The procedure can be performed on men of all ages who are in good health, both physically and emotionally. The best candidates for male breast reduction surgery have firm, elastic skin.
Male breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes one to three hours. Dr. Jejurikar employs several techniques to perform male breast reduction depending on your goals and which procedures you feel comfortable with:
- Liposuction, if the enlarged breasts are primarily caused by excess fatty tissue, or
- In the presence of excess glandular tissue, the tissue will be surgically removed and liposuction performed.
Following male breast reduction surgery, you might experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort for a few days.
